P.R. Wright 12350 W. Bola Dr. Surprise # 308; expressed several concerns about the property
directly south of her, and asked whether or not the new building will be a 2
or 3 story structure, and asked if there will be a solid wall built along the
property line and if it will have pedestrian openings in it. Ms. Wright also
expressed her concerns regarding the roofline of this new structure.
Planner Jochums explained that the property directly
to the south is zoned C-2, however he was unaware if any developments were
planned for this property at the current time. Regarding the specifics about
future buildings and site design of the site involved in this application,
Mr. Jochums deferred this question to the applicant.

explained that they will propose a two-story building with a flat roof

ITEM # 4 SP04-256 Chuy’s Mesquite Boiler Restaurant
Planner Andy Jochums presented the staff report.
Commissioner Segarra suggested that he would like to
see additional parking stalls (discussed in Item # 14, ADA Parking Spaces,
contained within the staff report). He also recommended that Item # 23 of
the staff report be removed. He also expressed concern with the location of
the trash dumpster, the lack of handicap parking stalls, and landscaping.
Arc 1930 E. Wilson St. Chandler, AZ;
identified himself as the applicant. He explained that the trash container
will be moved to the left side of the building, and that there are a total of
5 handicap parking spaces on-site.
Planner Jochums responded that additional handicap
parking stalls indicated by the applicant may not comply with the code
regarding the size and design of the individual stalls.
Commissioner Morris suggests three
stalls should have markings indicating handicap parking. He also expressed
concern with the location of the sidewalks. He asked if the sidewalk ends at
a certain point, and questioned why the sidewalk did not wrap around the building.
Commissioner Morris suggested that by perhaps repositioning the building
additional space to place a sidewalk might be created.
Mr. Arc presented a site plan of a completely
different site configuration that illustrated additional space for a sidewalk.
Chairman Senft suggested that the Commission should
continue SP04-256 to a future P & Z Meeting in order to review the
new site plan.
City Attorney Blilie suggest this item be continued
to the February 15, 2005 P & Z Commission Meeting.

Chuy’s Mesquite Broiler Restaurant, to the February 15, 2005 P & Z
Commission Meeting. Commissioner Blair seconded the motion. The motion
carried with 6 yes votes (Commissioner Hall was absent).
